HTC P3470 unboxed!

You may recall a couple of weeks ago HTC announced their new “Budget” GPS enabled Windows Mobile Pocket PC, the HTC P3470.

Previously known to us as the HTC Pharos, the P3470 having undergone a name change has also undergone a slight facelift and is, in my opinion, now an attractive looking device.

We’ve been lucky enough to get our hands on a pre-production sample unit to review and, naturally, you can find our unbox video below.

First impressions are that the device seems quite capable and despite the relatively slow CPU (just 201 mHz) it seems to run along quite smoothly, probably aided by the 128MB of RAM. The lack of 3G and WiFi is a bit of a disapointment which is only offset slightly by the integrated GPS. I feel that £300 may be a bit too high to really consider the HTC P3470 a ‘budget’ device.

Smart, simple and easy to use, TomTom Navigator 6 is the best sat-nav solution for your PDA or mobile phone. The intuitive interface, crystal clear instructions and easy call handling make it the ideal navigation partner for the P3470. The touch interface and large 2.8in screen ensure the AGPS-enabled sat-nav is easy to use, and the HTC P3470 is truly mobile thanks to the long battery life. The HTC P3470 also includes a 1GB Micro SD card for mapping and other data storage.

“The HTC P3470 integrates GPS-location into an innovative and high-powered phone that brings location-based experiences to customers looking for power and affordability,” said Florian Seiche, Vice President, HTC Europe. “We are very pleased to announce this addition to the product portfolio, continuing our commitment to provide an option for every user.”
